An Enemy Hath Done This
(July 31, 2008)
The tumult that the house of Picataggi began is having great reprecussions on Pinecrest and this man's illegal rule over what God Himself gave to Wade Taylor. Can this man bring greater sin and shame unto himself and his household than he has already done?
Jack along with some of his surrogates have been in contact with this website quite a number of times over the past 45 days, leveling charges making accusations and even seeking material with which to level further accusations -- which we took no part of.
Since we now know first hand we have their rapt attention. It would seem in order to offer here a mini bible study.
Forgiving and Forgiveness
is a foundational teaching in the New Testament
Forgiving and Forgiveness is a foundational teaching in the New Testament
Matthew 6:14-16For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
God's Forgiveness to us even upon receipt can be revoked
Matthew 18:23-35 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king,(The Lord Jesus Christ) which would take account of his servants.(The Lord does have an accounting process for all of us from time to time) And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. (This man's sins had piled up as he was walking in darkness) But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his Lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children,(Sin affects you as the head of your household and all those that are subordinated to you --This was true with David, via his household and his kingdom as well.)and all that he had, and payment to be made. (Of that debt of sin down to the last mite) The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the Lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.(God can do this) But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their Lord all that was done. Then his Lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his Lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. (Here Jesus makes a promise) So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
Here God revoked His forgiveness
We have made mention on numerous occasions that when Jesus Christ speaks parables He is citing and quoting scripture. Here in this parable Christ is speaking from the Prophet Ezekiel among other places.
Ezekiel 3:17-21 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; (What he has been forgiven of shall be revoked and his full sins over his life shall come upon him) but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; (We also have also been warned and therefore are withour excuse) thou hast delivered thy soul.
Our forgiveness is conditional in many ways, we are required to humble ourselves before God, we are required to confess our sins before God -- until we are forgiven, We are required to humble ourselves before our brother we have sinned against, or else we will not be forgiven by God. We are required at times to confess our sins before one another -- this is a good thing. If we do not forgive our brethren of their sins we will not be forgiven, the full import of that is our forgiveness will be revoked, and all our sins in total in our life we shall be made accountable for.
Our sins as the head of a household are brought upon those in our household, upon those who attend our church, or bible school and the blood of all of these shall be accounted collectively upon our hands.
Over the month of July Wade Taylor has been spending increasing time in prayer and waiting before the Lord. He has received a number or words from the Lord from many people (Nationally and Internationally) who are not privy to the fiery trial he has been thrown into in recent months. These words have greatly encouraged him in the Lord and speak that this trial and all that has occurred to him is shortly to come to an end. And that Pinecrest as the School of the Spirit that the Lord gave to him shall be restored unto him as this will shortly in God's timing shall come to pass.
A few details are that the Lord will visit Wade again with a second visitation like that of 1959, and that the latter house of Pinecrest and the school of the Spirit shall exceed that of the former house. These words that are coming to Wade are amazing similar and are confirming and reconfirming God's call and promises in Wade's life.
We share these things to be an encouragement to those who pray and continue to stand by Wade's side.
May the Lord bless all of you
